I've bit my tongue for so long, always hoped for things getting better, but they don't. So now I have to get rid of some things...
We are not too happy in Kalana Fjord. So many people are arrogant, rude, inpolite. - My boys and me been away for a long time as I was building Corcyrus. That's true. But one of the reasons were, that since the junction of Kalana Fjord West and East, we were somehow pushed to an outsider-position.
Let's say it clearly: The owner of the neighbor-SIM and his men and slaves are an arrogant, ignorant, rude and inpolite bunch! They never tried to include us in their RP, and when we started a RP and tried to include them, then we were ignored.
It's strange, cause every SIM me and my boys visited, welcomed us nicely, appreciated our RP and would be happy if we would join them. So, why are we treated like scum by people I never had met before? I don't know.
Well, we took it for a while, busy with our own RP and stuff. This week we gave it another try. Offered RP by buying drinks as we needed it for a trade (see River's blog about that). Again we been ignored while so many people from other SIMs asked "Come to us! We trade with you! Please come!".
But the "highlight" been two days ago, when Endy and me were RPing making Kalana Wine (as none of "them" didn't want to trade it) and RPing with the blacksmith about an incident (another RP about a certain candy-thief, that was more or less planned OOC and should have continued...) at the docks... and right in the middle of that, said SIM-owner and his men came, dragged the blacksmith away from us without a greeting and left us standing there buffled. I. Am. Pissed!
Well, the ironic thing is: As we went home... totally upset... I met a woman from the village at the docks... and - surprise! surprise! - she complained IC too about the ignorant males in the village, slaves as well as Free. So at least it seems we are not the only ones who are ignored and bullied.
I don't think we can expect an apology for the (OOC!)-rudeness of these persons. And I don't think their manners will change. So, we are considering what to do at the moment. Just stick to our place, doing our own thing/RP, ignoring them as they ignore us? Or move on, as there are plenty of SIMs that would appreciate our RP and welcome us happily in their middle?
Well, my lil sunshine River is on travels (vacation) now anyways; so we will wait until he's back. I know, he will say "Wherever you go, we will follow!", but I don't want him to return to an abandonned home.
